A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.
Adam Lanza did not purchase a gun, and he killed both his mother and himself. None of these regulations would have had any impact towards preventing the shooting. Mass murderers don’t care about laws, consequences or punishment. Are they going to put Lanza’s dead body in jail for carrying a gun near a school? How freaking stupid is our vice-president?
The only thing that would have prevented the shooting was having someone else armed at the school.
